Phil "the thrill" Spencer talks about "unhealthy" Xbox One fanboyism.

Phil Spencer seems to be a really cool guy.

He even said he owns a PS4, and *gasp* plays games on a PS4.

I would like more people here with his attitude. 90% of the threads here are made to get reactions from people and start fights. Gamefaqs needs more Phil Spencer types. People that are normal enough to realize you can like more than one console instead of battling each other to the death over something so petty.

Go stand in front of a mirror. Then swipe your hand over your head and just repeat these words:

WHOOSH.

Well, if you are representative of a product then it is wise to criticize yourself first if you're going to criticize the customers of the industry as a whole.

He's completely right. I am not a 5-8 hour a day gamer by any means but I own two next-gen consoles and a portable because each brings something to the table. I realize I'm blessed to be able to make that statement because these systems aren't cheap.

I think a lot of fanboyism comes from the fact most gamers cannot make that easy decision and are limited by their personal finances on system choice (PC, Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, etc). Its a bigger investment to them and more important that they were "right" when purchasing a system. The other factor is that technology companies across market areas (PC, portable devices, consoles, etc) used zealotry as free advertising when they were emerging enterprises. It's cheaper - and possibly more effective - to have true believers being your sales rep than paying for somebody to do it. You can't just put the genie back in the bottle.

I'm sure Sony doesn't have the same sentiment right now because they have pounced on some Microsoft missteps in prerelease decisions (that they ultimately bent to consumer demands) to shape the narrative on places like this site. If the roles were reversed, we'd probably be hearing a Sony exec bemoaning the nastiest surrounding the market thanks to fans.

Maybe you're right, that's where fanboyism comes from. The inability to own all consoles. But as a kid, I only had one system per generation and I never hated on the others. There's no need to "justify" your purchase. Trashing someone else's tastes doesn't make your gaming experience more fun.
